The electoral district was created in the boundary redistribution in 1993 from Edmonton-Whitemud riding. The first election in 1993 saw Edmonton-Whitemud incumbent Percy Wickman pickup the new district for the Liberal party with a very large majority. Wickman was re-elected in a tight race in the 1997 general election. He retired at the end of his third term in 2001 due to health issues.

The 2001 general election saw former Member of Parliament Ian McClelland pickup the district for the first time for the Progressive Conservatives. He defeated Liberal candidate Rick Miller in a hotly contested race.

McClelland and Miller would face each other for the second time in the 2004 general election. This time Miller would gain significant share of the popular vote to defeat McClelland.

Miller would only last a single term in office, he ran for re-election in 2008 but was defeated in a very close race by Progressive Conservative candidate Fred Horne.
